Charles Bloom is originally from Los Angeles. He was born to the late screenwriter Harold Jack Bloom and actress Carolyn Kearney. He studied music theory and composition at NYU.
His cabaret/revue works have been heard in venues all over the world. Among the long list of artists to perform/record songs from his extensive, stylistically diverse catalogue are: Patti LuPone, Mandy Patinkin, Michael Feinstein, Christine Ebersole, B.D. Wong, Cheyenne Jackson, Andrea Marcovicci, Bruce Vilanch, Vicki Lewis, Alix Korey, Lindy Robbins, Aaron Lazar, Barbara Walsh, Matt Castle, Julie Reyburn and Richard Todd Adams.
For the theatre, he has written the book, music and lyrics to "Pablo," "Insomnia" and "Heaven Knows," and the score to "Character Breakdown." Active archives of some of his catalogue for student/faculty use are held by the musical theatre departments of over 25 universities in the US and abroad. The scores to "Heaven Knows" and "Insomnia" (produced and orchestrated by David Snyder) were both recipients of grants from The Anna Sosenka Trust. His work comprised an entire edition of the popular Australian musical theatre radio show, Broadway at Bedtime, hosted by Will Conyers.
